The Living Culture 2009 Manifesto is an outline of goals and intentions for the coming year. We want to explore the relationship between people and the seasonal foods that grow in the Willamette Valley. The focus will be on gardeners, farmers, local food activists, and artisans, all of whom are working to promote their local food economy. We plan on allowing our guests to speak for themselves, and to share their skills and knowledge with viewers throughout the area.
